The official website for the Gintama anime franchise announced today that the title of the forthcoming all-new feature film is Gintama THE FINAL and its release date of January 8, 2021. It will be the franchise's third feature film, following Gintama: The Movie (2010) and Gintama: The Movie: The Final Chapter: Be Forever Yorozuya (2013).
Also, it is confirmed that the character designs for Gintama THE FINAL will be totally renewed. The Gintama manga's original author Hideaki Sorachi will cooperate fully with the film, and the first visual newly-drawn by him will be unveiled on August 20.
The site has posted a 50-second new teaser trailer narrated by the three Yorozuya members.
Message from the writer/director Chizuru Miyawaki:
"I think this movie is going to be amazing in many ways. All of us are working hard day and night to give it our all so that everyone who is looking forward to it can enjoy it to the fullest. We hope that you will be able to enjoy it at the theater to find out how it's going to turn out, and we also hope that the world will be a place where we can safely deliver it to you by then. ...Anyway, I just finished drawing the whole storyboard for the film the other day, so I can't tell you anything good about it yet (gkbr).
